This fall will be Adventure Time on the Nintendo DS and the Nintendo 3DS as the first console game based on the awesome animated series will make its debut. I’m not sure how one packs all the schizo awesomeness of Adventure Time into a handheld game, but I’m sure it will be fun.
Back in the 80s and 90s, if you wanted to either outright cheat or add a little extra to your games for the NES, Genesis or SNES, you could get a Game Genie and get infinite lives, infinite weapons, etc. Since most games have gone to optical discs, the Game Genie lost much of its awesomeness, but now the Genie is back out of the bottle for the Nintendo DS and 3DS.
Before I traded up to a Nintendo 3DS, one of my favorite homebrew apps, and one of the reasons I got a DS in the first place was Colors, a really great painting program. Colors was only available through using an R4 cart, but now it’s got Nintendo’s official blessing and will be released as a downloadable app for the 3DS via the eShop.
From now until February 20, if you’ve got a Nintendo DS or 3DS, you can hop on the DS store and pick up your free copy of The Legend of Zelda Four Swords Anniversary Edition. There’s all new levels from from the first LoZ for NES, Link’s Awakening, and A Link to the Past! In addition to wireless 4-play co-op, there’s an all new single player mode for you foreveralones out there.

If you’re looking forward to all the new games coming out for the Wii, DS and 3DS, Nintendo just dropped them on you like a ten ton Koopa. I did notice that some of the games marked as “DS” in the list are really 3DS, so use your noggins.
Back in 2009 (which was like soooo long ago), professional Lego builder Sean Kenney was commissioned to build a ginormous Nintendo DS out of Lego for the Nintendo World Store in New York. Wait… there’s a Nintendo World Store in New York? How long has that been there?
Apparently, France has one of the most active homebrew Nintendo DS game communities out there for some reason, and a bunch of them recently competed in a DS homebrew competition, where the theme was “swimsuits”. And these are three of the games that came out of that little bit of sportsmanship.
